LDEO Faunal Data - Counts of Foraminifera from Selected Marine CoresEntry ID: gov.noaa.ngdc.G01022
Abstract: ABSTRACT: Counts of primarily planktonic foraminifera from Dr. W.F. Ruddiman and staff at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University are included in these files. Some diatom observations made by Dr. C. Sancetta of LDEO are also included. The data set consists of approximately 35 files of faunal counts including core id., latitude, longitude, water depth, and appropriate transfer ... function. Data also include depth in core, count of total species, total abundance, case condition for count, core type code, and faunal code. A taxonomic overview is included, along with complete documentation. Associated Sea Surface temperature estimates are also included. These data are available for direct ftp download from NGDC's Web server.
